Disability support

Student services man and student sat at desk smiling.

The Student Services team is the central point of contact for students who wish to discuss any requirements in relation to a disability.

These include:

  • Provision of a confidential advice and information service
  • Liaison with any external support agencies
  • Discuss physical access requirements, which can include adjustments to student accommodation
  • Co-ordinating the provision of equipment where appropriate
  • Co-ordinating provision of auxiliary services e.g. mobility assistance, emergency community call-out services
  • Providing assistance with applications for Disabled Student Allowance either through Student Finance or organising Needs Assessments.
  • Co-ordinating arrangements and providing access to additional learning support, e.g. scribes, communicators, dyslexia tutors, additional time in exams and so on.

Declaring a disability


If you have not already done so, you can declare a disability at any time during your course. We would advise you to do this as early as possible, to ensure that the Student Services team has the best opportunity to arrange and co-ordinate any support requirements you may have.

If you would like to know more about Student Services policies and procedures relating to supporting disabled students, please see the pages below

Sharing information about disabled students

Disabled students may or may not wish to share information about their disability with their course tutors.

In order for academic staff to be aware of any disabilities or adjustments required, we ask the student to sign a consent to share form. Whilst this not compulsory, it is in the student's interest for the appropriate staff to be aware of any support requirements.
